Imps a huge 5-1 to win at Walsall

LINCOLN head to the Bescot Stadium for the first time since February 2007 looking to progress to the second round of the FA Cup and are a huge 5-1 to beat the Saddlers in 90 minutes and book a tie against either fellow Conference outfit Mansfield or Slough Town of the Southern League Division One Central.

The last time the Imps made the trek to Walsall, a first-half double from Spencer Weir-Daley inspired John Schofield's men to a 2-1 victory, giving City four out of a possible six points against them that season.

Considering they are a without a win in 10 games, Dean Smith's charges find themselves the 4-6 jollies with William Hill (and as short as 8-15 with Betfred) to win through in normal time, while the draw at 90 minutes is a general 3-1 shot.

Lincoln are also an attractive 100-30 with skybet to qualify for the second round - Walsall are an amazingly low 1-5 with the same firm.

David Holdsworth is currently enjoying his bet spell as City boss with an unbeaten eight-match run seeing his players enter this encounter in high spirits, while his opposite number Smith is coming under increasing pressure as Walsall search for their first win in any competition since September 29, having lost six of their last 10 matches, a spell that has seen them concede 18 goals, scoring just nine times.

Walsall's six-goals striker George Bowerman, whose equaliser against the Imps in the original meeting is his only goal in 10 games, is the 4-1 co-favourite with Coral to bag the opening goal, along with former Manchester United youngster Febian Brandy, who has yet to start a game or score a goal for the Saddlers this season, and Jamie Paterson, who has only netted three all season.

Man-of-the-moment Jamie Taylor, who has scored six goals in his last seven games, can be backed at a hefty 9-1 with bet365 and Coral to score first and is 10-3 to find the target at any time, and no doubt plenty of Imps followers will be keen to get stuck into the in-form marksman. Vadaine Oliver, who netted his first goal since September 15 at the weekend when heading City into a 2-0 lead at Barrow, is 12-1 (bet365), with centre-back Andrew Boyce, always a threat at set-pieces, a massive 50-1 (Coral) to fire City in front.

City are 18-1 with BetVictor to repeat the 2-1 win of their last trip to Walsall and are also 18-1 with Coral to edge the tie 1-0, with the home side 6-1 to win by that score.

Those who like a bet on the handicap can find City at 5-4 (Blue Square) to win in 90 minutes with a one-goal head start, and possibly one of the most interesting bets of the night is the 17-2 with skybet for Taylor to score and City to win.
